The Palomar Interagency Hotshot Crew (IHC) chose legendary coach John Wooden's book Wooden on Leadership as the basis for their 2013 leadership training.

Winter/Beginning of Fire Season (2012/2013)

Prior to leaving for season in 2012, returning crew members were encouraged to read Wooden On Leadership by Coach John Wooden, one of the most revered basketball coaches of all time. Crew members were asked to reflect on how the message could better themselves, their team, and their relationships in life. Crew members were told that the book would become the basis of the 2013 leadership training efforts for Palomar Hotshots.

Refresher Training and Beyond (May 2013)

Wooden on Leadership was woven into refresher training.  The crew spent time digging deeper into Wooden material.

On the Road with Wooden on Leadership  (June 2013)

Even though Palomar IHC was busy with fires, they brought Wooden along on their journey. The crew dove into each chapter of Wooden On Leadership. They found it as a great framework to leadership and a successful organization. Two members of the crew were selected to overview and present each chapter.
